About

Surprised Scarlett Johansson is a two-panel image macro featuring actress Scarlett Johansson smiling while looking into the camera with the second frame showing an expression of surprise or happiness, which originally comes from the set of the 2013 film Don Jon. The reaction image is typically used to express how something makes one feel suddenly happy or surprised upon an outcome described in the caption above. The format was popularized in September 2020, primarily on Reddit.

Origin

The original scene that the meme is pulled from comes from two different photos taken some time in 2012 during the filming of Don Jon, which was released on September 27th, 2013 (seen below).



The original posting of these photos online is unknown, but the first time it’s used as a meme format comes from a post by Redditor[1] hctiks to the /r/MemeEconomy subreddit on September 10th, 2020, where it accumulated more than 12,100 upvotes, 338 comments and several Reddit awards in five days (shown below).
